The national road freight transport survey covers the performance of Austrian companies using heavy goods vehicles and articulated lorries registered in Austria on Austrian territory and abroad. Important key figures are the transport volume and transport performance of the vehicles used. The data collection is conducted using a sample survey which is carried out following the nationality principle. The results are published quarterly and annually.
Alongside the national statistics, the consolidated European road freight transport statistics are an important source for the depiction of the total road freight transport on Austrian territory. The inclusion of toll data collected by the Autobahnen- und Schnellstraßen-Finanzierungs-Aktiengesellschaft (ASFINAG) enables a model-based weighting of the parameters as well as the imputation of missing values on non-EU countries.
